Why Horseshoes Are Lucky.
TVhy is an old horseshoe supposed to
bring luck to the owner if hung in the
hall or behind the door? Horseshoes
were at one time nailed up as a pro
tection against witches. There is a
legend that the devil one day asked
St Dunstan. who was noted fcr his
skill in shoeing horses, to shoe his
"single hoof." Knowing who his cus
tomer was. Dunstan tied him tightly
to the wall and proceeded with his
job. but purposely put the devil Into
so much pain that he roared for mer
cy. And it was not until he had prom
ised that he would never again enter
a place where he saw a horseshoe dis
played that Dunstan would release his
Wise to Him.

Versatility and Cleverness of a
Shrewd Scotch Lad.
FOOLED THE CONNOISSEURS.
fe Poured Forth His Extraordinary
Documents In Profusion to Supply
the Demand and Wat Finally Ex
posed by a Simple Little Slip.
From the days of Isidor Mercater,
who forged letters of the bishops of
Rome with such skill and success that
they were treasured for centuries in
the Roman archives, to the days of
Ireland, the notorious forger of Shake
spearean plays and letters, and Chat
terton. the clever and ill fated boy
who died miserably in bis attic, there
have never been wanting unprincipled
men who could forge ancient manu
scripts so cleverly that leading experts
have been deceived.
But for versatility and cleverness
none of these forgers of past centuries
could approach the cleverness of a
f young Scotchman who years ago pro
duced a long succession of forged man
uscripts which completely baffled the
connoisseurs of the world. The true
and full story of these remarkable
forgeries is almost unknown and is so
extraordinary that it may well be told.
It was in Edinburgh that this in
comparable forger practiced his arts,
and it was by an accident that he was
tempted to embark on a career which,
after a spell of great success, involved
him in disaster. One day the princi
pal of an Edinburgh firm of lawyers
told one of his clerks to clear out sev
eral boxes full of old documents, the
accumulation of many years. Among
them were several documents and au
tographs the value of which the clerk
was quick to recognize, and he had no
difficulty in finding purchasers for
them. As the supply was limited and
the demand constantly increasing it
occurred to him to supplement the gen
uine documents with others of his
own manufacture, and as he developed
a remarkable skill in forging and had
already won the confidence of a large
number of collectors he found it easy
to dispose of as many forgeries as he
could produce at very profitable prices.
Many of them were sold to collectors
in different parts of the world, others
were disposed of by auction, and the
remainder were pawned and sold as
unredeemed pledges. These forgeries
covered a very wide range and includ
ed autographs and letters by Crom
well, Mary, queen of Scots; James VI.,
Prince Charlie, John Knox, Rob Roy,
Burns, Scott, Thackeray, Carlyle, Salis
bury, Gladstone, Lord Nelson and
many other men of note as well as
vast quantities of Jacobite correspond
ence. So cleverly were the forgeries exe
cuted that the largest purchaser of
Scott's letters was a gentleman who
as a boy had carried most of the great
author's manuscripts from Abbotsford
to his Edinburgh publishers and was
as familiar with Scotfs handwriting:
as his own, and the head of the firm
that published Lord Byron's works
purchased forty-seven letters purport
ing to be Lord Byron's for the sum of
125 7s. 6d- A very large collection of
these manuscripts was purchased for
a sum of over 4.000 and presented to
the Lenox library. New York, where
they were for some time regarded with
reverence, as. thtxh?f treasure jof the

library, " and"" another ."oTl;ctiatr was
presented to the city of Edinburgh.
Although these forgeries were pour
ed on the market in such profusion, no
suspicion seems to have been aroused.
They were accepted without question
by the experts and found ready pur
chasers at large prices. Whether the
forger's success made him careless or
whether it was due to one of those re
markable oversights to which the most
skillful criminals seem liable and
which bring their career to a close, the
forger was at last exposed through a
mistake of which such a clever man
should scarcely have leen capable.
Among the many forgeries he pro
duced a poem signed by Robert Burns.
It was called "The Toor Man's Pray
er" and opened with this stanza:
Amidst the more Important toils of state.
The counsels laboring in the patriotic
Though Europe from thy voice expect her
And thy keen glance extend from pole
This poem, which consisted of nine
teen verses, might well have escaped
detection with the rest but for the
fact that a gentleman to whom the
poem was shown discovered the iden
tical verses in the London Magazine
of 17CG in a poem addressed to the
Earl cf Chatham by one Simon Hodge,
Thus it appeared that If the verses
were actually written by Burns the
poet must have opened them under
the pseudonym of Simon Ilodge at the
very Immature age of a poet of seven
years. Suspicion once aroused, doubt
was at once cast on the hundreds f
other documents which had emanated
from tbe same source. The Lenox col
lection was submitted to the experts
of the British museum and pronounced
"a worthless lot of forgeries," and col
lectors all the world over awoke to the
painful discovery that their treasures
of old manscripts were scarcely worth
rthe paper they were written on. The
'forger's career was brought to a sud
den termination. He was brought up
for trial and sentenced to a term of
limprisoament, thus closing a career of
iforgery which for daring, cleverness
and success has perh;ts never been
tequaled. New York Press.

The Bodies of All of Them Are Com
When you increase greatly the size
and the weight of any moving body,
whether it be traveling on the ground,
floating through the air or swimming
under the water, you alter in a most
serious way the proportionate effect on
the moving body of what Is called
It is a noteworthy fact that there
are no large flying animals large, that
id to say, as animals go. It is true
that there is a great range in the size
of flying animals, from the minutest
flies up to the condor vulture and the
albatross. But tbe bodies of those
birds are small, not larger than that
of an ordinary dog, and the stretch of
the wings is only about ten feet, while
their weight In proportion to size is
reduced by great internal air sacs,
which extend even Into the bones.
Even when we examine the records
of "extinct monsters," among which
are some huge creatures as big in body
as the biggest elephants of today and
longer by reason of their great lizard
like tails, we find no instances of very
big flying creatures. The extinct group
of the flying reptiles called pterodac
tyles because the wing was supported
by an enormously elongated finger are
mostly small creatures, not bigger than
largest known had an expanse of wing
giving eighteen feet from the tip of
one wing to the tip of the other, but
Its body was a little thing, not bigger
than that of a swan. This Is the lar
gest pair of wings known, and we
must remember that In these larger
pterodactyles and birds the bones are
thin walled, hollow cylinders filled
with air. so that these creatures are
not only small, but have a small spe
cific gravity. Sir Ray Lankester in
The Kat Plant.
In parts of Abyssinia and Yemen
the natives use a plant called kat
(Catba ednlis). the effects of which are
similar to those of the Peruvian coca.
The freshly cut leaves have a rather
pleasant taste and produce a kind of
intoxication of long duration, with
none of the disagreeable features of
ordinary inebriety. Messengers and
soldiers are enabled by chewing tbe
leaves to go without food for a num
ber of days. Among those who abuse
the habit the body tends to dry, the
visage becomes emaciated, and nerv
ous trouble follows, tbe most usual
being a trembling of tbe limbs, but
these cases are rare. At times a too
copious absorption of kat produces a
etate of drunkenness, particularly
when the large leaves are employed.
